Africa and the veterinary world lose one of their most committed advocates

Paris, 29 November 2010 – The OIE is saddened to announce the unexpected death of Dr Abdoulaye Bouna Niang, Regional Representative of the OIE for Africa.

For many years Dr Niang had been Director of the Veterinary Services of Senegal before his election to President of the OIE International Committee in 2004. In his last appointment as OIE Regional Representative for Africa Dr Niang had been particularly committed to improve animal health and the veterinary services in the African continent.

The Director General of the OIE, Dr Bernard Vallat, together with the entire OIE personnel deeply regrets the loss of our esteemed good friend and colleague.
